    Just Remember WHAT QBs Won in Cleveland:

    4 of those 14 players were day one selections. Not a lot of high quailty NFL talent there. 4 day one selections in 3 years. Not good at all. Compare that to OSU who has 21 players selected in those same years with 8 day one selections. Twice as many day one selection as ND. In the last five drafts ND has had 8 defensive players drafted. Just last year USC had 8 defensive players drafted!! In one year thay had as many as ND has had in the past 5 years! As far as Weiss evaluating talent....That who process is a joke when it comes to ND players. There are so many domer homers that as soon as a player decides he's going to go to ND he goes from being rated as a two or three star recruit to a four or five star recruit!! He has to be be better than we thought!!! Charlie recruited him!!!! What a joke. I think it's a combination of him not getting the talent that the media likes to portray and he's not the good teacher they likw to portray him as either.

    Thanks so much. Those kind of comments mean a lot. I actually don't keep many of them. Some I've given away to old vets. I get the most pleasure from doing that. Those guys really appreciate it when you give the something like this. I built a modern M1A2 Abrams and wanted to give it away to a current or past Abrams crewman but didn't know anyone to give it to. There is actually a market for them on eBay and I've sold many there. I don't make much when I sell them but it allows to me make enough that I can continue to build for very little cost and this hobby is very expensive. I can't tell you how many I've built and I only have 5 still in my house.

    Here's the last few I'll bore ya with. Thank God for these brave Sherman crews. The next to last one is a German 251/9 infantry support Halftrack followed by a captured Russian armored car now in Nazi service.

    I haven't ever shot that but I'm not a huge gun guy. I own a Remington 870 for deer season and a Savage 30-06 and thats all I've ever shot. Well, the M16 and M50 while in the army. I also carried the M203 during the first gulf war. I want so badly to shoot a M1 someday....And a Thompson.

    The dio base and most of the stuff on them are all all scratch built using a variety of stuff. The tanks are kits made by several different companies. Most kits will have 150 to 400 pieces to them. It takes me a month to six weeks to build, paint and weather a tank. Thanks so much for the kind words. Again, I was inspired by the efforts of great men.

    It is a M1 and a BAR. I'm not a WWII gun expert though so hopefully I gave them the right weapons. The trick was adding the slings to both weapons. Thanks so much for the compliment. It's tedious work but a labor of love. I started it in appreciation of those great guys who fought for us and I have got better through the years.

    A few more American WWII AFV's. Thought mz the pussy and Jewdawg might like these....An Israeli Super Sherman circa 1950's and the original Merkava circa 1980's.

    In one of my hobbies I enjoy memorializing these guys. I build 1/35 scale armor and dioramas. I build mostly American but do soem German stuff as well. Also modern Israeli stuff.

    The greatest men to ever put on an American service uniform. I love that generation. It was as Tom Brokaw so eloquently termed, 'The greatest generation".

    Next year's RB Class

    I'm not sure he's even the best back on the team. Chris Brown looked great while playing for the often injured Murray. Murray may have first round talent but he has some real durability issues. He also had games where he didn't even average a yard per carry. I know one was against Texas. I think it was Baylor that completely shut him down as well. It was good to see him gain some weight coming into last year. He needed it. Although he ended this season needing surgery. This is the kind of stuff that will hurt him come draft day. I don't think he's in the same class as Spiller, Dwyer or Mcnight.

    Browns on the ground

    It's why I don't see MoMass or Robiskie being a slot guy while the other is a wideout on three WR sets. Besides the fact that they are both more traditional split ends and that's where their futures will be. I think one will start at a Wideout position while one of the old cagey vets such as Patten or Furrey will line up in the slot.

    What can we expect from Alex Hall?

    I'm really excited over Hall.

    Browns on the ground

    I have a hard time believing that MoMass or Robiskie will be playing the slot when the Browns brought in two guys like Mike Furrey and David Patten. This WR corps got me to thinking.....Comparing this group to the Jets group from last year, I wonder if Mangin feels like he has died and went to WR heaven. The Jets starting three WR's were all 6' or under. With this team Mangini sees 6'3" Edwards, 6'3" Robiskie, 6'3" Leggett, 6'2" Massaquio and 6'2" Hubbard take the field everyday. This also makes me think that Mangin saw a real problem with his WR corps in N.Y. and it's part of the reason we saw so many WR's drafted and brought in via FA.

    Stafford, Quinn have impressed early

    I think all of this is smoke and mirrors. Quinn is going to start. I'm sure EM has watched all the game tapes and I'm sure he has seen two glaring problems in Derek's game. One is Something we've all seen time and time again. His inability to put any touch on a short pass is beyond bad.....He may be the worst QB I've ever seen try to throw short passes. He simply can't do it. In today's game where blitzing is almost constant, you need a Qb that can either move well or one that can dump off to a second and third or fourth receiver. Both is preferable and Anderson can do neither. Run or dump it off. Anderson needs to be part of an offense that does nothing but throw the ball deep downfield all the time. The stereotypical Raider's offense.

    What is wrong with Trent Dilfer?

    This is exactly right. That's why Dilfer's statement makes even less sense.

    What is wrong with Trent Dilfer?

    We all know what is wrong with Dilfer. He's a serious Tool.

    Browns on the ground

    That depends on who wins the position. If Martin Rucker wins the starting the job he never blocked anyone in college. Mangini didn't have much of a blocking TE in N.Y. Keller was more in the mold of a Winslow. An athletic Receiving TE more than a pure bruising blocking TE. Rucker may be more of a traditional TE than Keller or Winslow, but not by much.

    The Expansion Browns Best Victory Yet

    I completely agree....I'll never forget that game. I feel on the floor laughing when that FG went through the uprights and then called my brother to get his reaction. We were both laughing and saying this is classic stuff!

    Tackling Big Gay Ben

    I could not care less if you are gay or straight. Regardless, your response was an over reaction. Have a sense of humor and stop feeling sorry for yourself.. If I got called "Pussy" I would laugh and think...."Wow, what a compliment, they are calling me the greatest thing God ever created!"

    Tackling Big Gay Ben

    I think it's kind of silly or childish myself..........But damn man! That may be a bit of over reaction there!

    Next year's RB Class

    It better be.... With a New QB and a defensive that lost a load of front seven players, the O-line is going to have to dominate and control games. It'll be interesting to see how many of those new USC starters on defense will handle a more mature and improved Pryor in the OSU game. Also interesting in that game will be OSU's experienced D-line against USC's experienced O-line. OSU returns not only all four starters but the entire D-line rotation is back except for Abdullah. I have a feeling the Buckeyes will go all out and blitz Corps to try and rattle him....If he ends up winning the job ahead of Mustain that is. I heard he is probably in the lead to win the starting job. What a brilliant move by Mustain.... Leaving Fayetteville for California to sit on the bench

    Brian Robiskie at camp

    After so many years in a Buckeye uniform it's strange seeing him in anything else.....But man, it looks good!!!

    Brian Robiskie at camp

    Besides having a new QB that didn't throw the ball as well as Boeckman did, Robo's number's also suffered due to being dinged during the year as well. I think he was finally completely healthy for the Fiesta Bowl and it showed. He's going to be a very good NFL WR. I think he has the potential to be a #1 just as neighbor mentioned. I'm excited about Edwards, Furrey and Robiskie being the main guys on three WR sets. With Cribbs, MoMass and Patten adding depth. What a huge improvement from last year's WR corps!
